Forum: etree Subject: Replace the flawed tracks, please

Hello,
I uploaded a fix to skb2003-07-10d1t06.shn and a new .md5 file. I have sent in numerous requests to have the flawed track replace since people keep downloading it not knowing it is flawed.

Please fill out an error report. When it comes to file system admins, we're greatly understaffed. There are about 200 pending requests, so unfortunately this one will have to get in line. With the next website (which I'm working hard on), you'll be able to maintain files associated with a show by yourself, so this will no longer be an issue. In the mean time, however, we need to bear with what we've got. I apologize for the inconvenience - I know it's no good to have flawed sources available.

Thanks for your patience.


Jon

Perhaps leave a review on the show itself saying that one of the files is flawed? I don't think anyone but curators bothers to read the error reports, but the reviews are right there on the details page...

If someone has a fixed track to be replaced, it's best to give a heads up on the *error report*- file-moving admins can't track reviews and will definitely miss those.

However, *multiple* identical error reports of the same thing "here's a fix" = "I said, here's a fix"- are actually a bit of a hindrance though. If you see one already (they are viewable), you'll know it's in the queue.

Sorry the file moving/changing (incl txt file updates) is a bottleneck right now... Thanks to everone who helps straighten things out! :) You work is appreciated even though the next step is a bit slow at the moment!

Sorry Diana - didn't mean to imply that a review was for the admins!

I was trying to help the original poster somehow warn would-be downloaders to not grab the show for the time being while the fixed file was pending, since that was one of his/her concerns.

EDIT: Although now that I think about it, don't uploaders have control over what appears on the details page? I think I remember putting something like this in the "Notes" area for another show that was temporarily flawed, because I'm not sure if reviews are modifiable...
